The Open Option Track is a self-selected track for students admitted into ITP who wish to explore a variety of telecom electives or students who are pursuing the Master of Science in Telecommunications part-time.
Although this track allows for greater course flexibility, students following the enrollment schedule of the other tracks (Network Engineering, Network Security, Telecom Policy and Strategy, and Wireless) will have first enrollment priority above Open Option enrollees in their own respective track courses. Often ITP will hold additional course sections for popular track courses for out-of-track students. Learn more about ITP's admissions and application here
